I really love the idea of buying and selling websites. Recently I listed one of my blogs on Flippa, a marketplace for buying and selling websites, and sold it successfully.
Then, I bought another blog outside of Flippa. Since we’ve already talked about selling blogs this week, I wanted to walk you through my buying experience today…
A couple of months ago while browsing the web I landed on a blog called WPBlogTips.com. Eventually, my eye got stuck on a banner that said, “This site is for sale”.
At that time I was thinking of starting a blog in the internet marketing niche, which is the niche that WPBlogTips.com covers.
To be honest, I personally hate to start a blog from the ground up. It’s a lot of work! Choosing the domain, crafting content, building traffic, waiting till the Google sandbox effects end before you can start link building, growing an active community …
obviously there’s a lot to do, and in many cases the job is tedious.
I would prefer to buy an established blog in a niche that has decent traffic, an engaged community, and quality content.
